Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Rasheed Wallace and the Portland Trail Blazers made a mockery of the New Jersey Nets in the first quarter, then teased them the rest of the night.

Wallace scored seven of his 16 points in the first 12 minutes as the Trail Blazers built a 19-point lead, then rolled to a 94-82 victory over the Nets.

New Jersey managed to claw within four points before halftime and again early in the fourth quarter, but each time the Blazers responded with a run to restore a double-digit advantage.

Wallace also had four blocked shots, a pair of steals and 11 rebounds. Dale Davis blocked three shots and grabbed 17 rebounds, while Steve Smith scored 17 points and reserves Bonzi Wells and Shawn Kemp added 15 apiece.

"Our first unit is real tough and they wear down starting teams," Wells said. "We (the reserves) like to come in and put that finishing blow on them."

Stephon Marbury, the NBA Player of the Week, led the Nets with 24 points, ending his streak of 30-plus games at five. Rookie Kenyon Martin added 18 and Aaron Williams had 14.

The Blazers won their fourth straight game after a 1-3 start, while the Nets again saw how much they need a big game from Marbury until they get some of their injured players back.

"You are not going to stop Marbury, but you have to take him out of transition," Blazers guard Greg Anthony said. "(The Nets) are not a good perimeter shooting team, so you have to eliminate all of those rhythm shots and those transition layups he gets. They have relied on turnovers and bad shots. Whenever we were able to make them play halfcourt, we were successful."

After Martin tied it at 4-4 with a 17-foot jumper less than two minutes in, the Blazers went on a 27-8 charge, capped by Wells' fastbreak layup from Scottie Pippen that made it 31-12 with 1:22 left.

Wallace scored eight points in the run but anchored a Portland defense that wreaked havoc with the Nets' attempts at an offensive scheme. He had three blocks and two of the Blazers' seven steals in the quarter.

"We realize that defense is first and foremost and everybody has to do their part so we can come away with the win," said Pippen, who finished with five assists and four steals.

Portland limited New Jersey to 30 percent (6-of-20) shooting and turned the Nets' seven turnovers into 14 points as they seemingly broke open the game.

The Nets closed the first half strongly, however. After Davis followed Kemp's miss to give the Blazers a 50-34 lead with 4:19 left, New Jersey did not allow a field goal the rest of the quarter during a 14-2 run.

Marbury scored eight points in the spurt, which Kendall Gill fueled with a pair of steals from Smith. Marbury's layup with 50 seconds left pulled the Nets within 52-48, which was where it stood at halftime.

"I expected them to come back," Kemp said. "I didn't know when, but I figured they would get confidence and start making some baskets. We held them off by coming out and playing better in the second half. That let you know that we were serious about winning this ballgame."

The Nets were still close when coach Byron Scott was ejected with 6:58 left in the third quarter for something he said to the referee. The two free throws Smith hit got the Blazers going on a 10-2 run that gave them their largest lead of the quarter, 71-59. Portland took a 77-68 advantage into the final period.

"I think (the referee) was ticked off from the time he stepped on the court," Scott said. "I didn't think we were getting our just due on one end and they were getting quick fouls and quick whistles, and we weren't getting any whistles."

After the Nets pulled within 77-73, Portland ripped off 10 straight points, including five by Wells, whose free throws put Portland up 87-73 with 4:58 left. The Nets did not challenge again.

"I thought we were in a good position for what we want to do, but they had too much tonight," Gill said. "They were the better team."

The win was the Blazers' first on the road this season and started a seven-game, 10-day trip.
